The DineLA menu was a good value; my friends and I had delicious food. My pork chop was flavorful, tender and moist--the best I've ever eaten--and the others loved their swordfish tacos and calamari. Crab bisque was wonderful as usual and crusty French onion soup was classic and perfect for a chilly, rainy night.
Service was attentive but not intrusive and everything from ordering to receiving our food to handling the check worked perfectly so we were able to arrive at our 7:30pm concert in plenty of time.

Central Park always has a very nice DineLA Restaurant Week menu that also is more affordable than most other restaurants in the area. My friend and I enjoyed our lunch there this week very much. I had a creative kale salad then an Ahi tuna sandwich accompanied by a small bowl of broccoli with unusual (and delicious) accompaniments. We were too full for dessert!

Tried for dineLa January 2017. Would (do hope to) return. The place was busy, the food a little slow, and the table by the door a little drafty, but the staff were very affable to turning up the heat and re-firing the overlooked steak. Everything tasted very, very good, and ultimately that's the point isn't it - the food has to be good.
dineLA allows you to affordably sample a restaurant you may not have previously considered. The restaurant is then responsible to do what it can to persuade you to return. Unlike some other dineLA evenings (Cliff's Edge in Los Feliz, a very disappointing meal) Central Park Cafe successfully did that (even with a couple of minor, but well handled, missteps along the way).

The evening started fine with our waiter taking good care of us; everything came within a reasonable time. Then we completed our meal, and the back waiter picked up our plates. Then we waited....and waited ....for 30 minutes, yes 30 minutes for our waiter to return and either bring a bill or bring a dessert menu, or bring something. Really weird wait after our meal. Then, the waiter finally shows up and apologizes.....that our meal hasn't come yet ! We broke the news to him that we already ate. He covered our dessert and coffee. Other that very big pregnant pause of a wait, everything else was fine.

Kale salad a few leaves, a cranberry or two and a walnut, very unappealing, friend had salmon that looked like skinny hospital food hiding under much sauce, my chicken sadwich on bread toasted to hide its age and resulted in a stack of hard crsted toast that was not able to be eaten as a sandwich, disapointed totally had wanted to go fr years, never again!food disgusted me after meal!

Central Park is our usual go to spot for meeting with friends because the menu has a little bit of everything, good service, and decent amount of free parking. However, the food has been better, my wife's sand dabs didn't have a whole lot of the caper sauce so it was on the dry side. I had the Park burger which was good but, they really charred the heck out of the thing so it had a burnt flavor to it. The last time I was here I had a filet mignon and they burnt my steak pretty good then too.
The main thing is that our friends enjoyed their food and the carrot cake with finished up with was delicious.

I eat at Central Park frequently. They have the best ever waffle breakfast, and great choices for dinner, too. I really enjoy their sand dabs, pasta, etc. There are always some special items; this is a place you can depend on for a good meal that is generous, delicious, but not overwhelming---

Four of us took the Goldline from Azusa as an adventure. Found this restaurant by searching on line for restaurants near the station. Pleasently surprised at the nice atmosphere at the Delmar Station. The walk across the street to the restaurant was across a busy street but there were traffic lights so it was no problem. Our reserved table was waiting for us in a nice location.
Loved the variety on the menu and will definitely return

This is one of my favorite places to dine. However, since my culinary consciousness has changed, my menu options are very limited. I would like to see 2-3 excellent Vegan choices. The times are changing and the menu must change with them. I look forward to see you evolve! Thank you!

This was a family evening including our 104 yr mother who has several physical limitations, and overall all it worked out very well. The food was excellent, as was the service personnel who went out of their way to accommodate a wheelchair and pre cut up mother's entrée. Giving us a round table certainly helped with the family conversation.
There were some minimal negatives: Only one handicap parking spot was not enough, It was a busy night and the noise level would have made conversation impossible were it not for our round table, and the key lime pie was a disappointment - more cream than pie. But otherwise, the comments from all of our party were that it was an excellent evening. This restaurant will be high on our list of favorite places.

have eaten here several times for lunch, this was a first for dinner.
food was not good, out a party of four, two orders were returned,both for being over cooked and
the salmon very dry, asian ribs very dry, and both orders were chewey
not in rush to return, at least for dinner. Have had better experiences for lunch.
No one came to the table to discuss or disatisfaction. no perks, so to speak for the problem, other than then not charging for two dinners.
NOT TP SPIFFY< TO SAY THE LEAST.

It was very nice of them to give veterans 14:95 off their meal, however my meal of yellowtail was not good. It was disappointing. We ordered two glasses of wine which were good, but by the time we left we had spent over 50 dollars.

Small, but cozy loved the ambiance. Food was delicious. I had the Prime Rib Pork and it was so juicy and tender. Basil Martini was very good. Prices were very reasonable. Crowd that night (Fri). was a senior crowd which we are part of but on the younger side of the baby boomers. Service was spot on and very accommodating , when I asked for substitution of polenta instead of mashed potatoes. Would definitely dine here again.

Most of my experiences at Central Park, have been good. However, this time the service was terrible. It took several requests, just to get menus. When asked for dessert menus, he brought only one! Our server never came to see how we were doing. He was only attentive about pushing more wine for the couple who were drinking. It was not a good experience for my sister with Alzheimers (her birthday), or for us.

This was the first lunch I had at Central Park. In the past, I've gone for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. There were three of us meeting for lunch: The chicken in my Chicken Caesar Salad was grilled too long so it was a little dry and chewy. My other friend had the crab salad and said that it was a little fishy. However, the service was friendly and efficient. I'll give it another try for lunch.

We dined here Sunday after a Pasadena Playhouse performance. Our reservation was at 5pm and patronage was sparse, but increased as the evening progressed. Full bar for those desiring a cocktail. Entrees did not disappoint. I had Short ribs and wife has flat iron steak. The only disappointment was that cioppino had been removed from the menu.

We have been a couple times already so we knew this place provided a lovely dining experience but on this occasion, I held a gathering for my family to celebrate my birthday. The staff could not have been more accommodating or attentive. Our waitress was great and so kind! We really enjoyed her and had such a nice time. They were really helpful in accommodating a party of 14 and all the food came out at the same time, perfectly. It is such a lovely and quaint building with views of the park, which is nice at night. Prior to this evening, we first found this place while searching for somewhere to have a brunch after my aunt's funeral last August. They do not make reservations during weekend brunch hours but after I explained our situation, manager was so kind in helping us out. We were a large party and we bombarded them at the tail end of their Sunday brunch service but they did not shoo us away and had the space ready for us after a short wait. The food was great and several of us have been back at different times on our own because we liked it so much. I highly recommend it!

Came here for lunch from the OC to celebrate a birthday.
The crab tower was delicious as was the crab cobb salad. The birthday key lime pie was a real treat and also as good or better than CCF.
Our server Bridget was very attentive always made sure our water glasses were filled as well as coffee.
